. don, so if a tsunami was generated here, we will know rather shortly how bad, how big and whether it has arrived on the coast in just a few minutes here. and we'll keep you posted. >> we all remember what happened back on march 11th, it was the earthquake and then the tsunami that damaged so much of japan and the nuclear power plant. it was evacuated for a time earlier. we're hearing now the workers had been let back in. do you have information on that? >> that's the thing. we've had these 7.0s where we have the big scare. a lot of folks not knowing when you feel the earthquake, you really aren't sure if it's a 7.0, is it an 8.0? the folks in and around the plant will take the precautions and evacuate. if we're getting word they're letting them back in, i think we are looking pretty good here along the coast. >> ivan, stay on top of that for us. as he was speaking, we did see video coming from nhk there in japan. we want to go now to dale grant with the usgs. he joins us now from golden, california tonight. listen, sir, as we look at this video and you see the shaking there and yo
'm don lemon. we'll start with breaking news tonight. we're starting with two big news stories. the first one, a roadblock tonight in negotiations over the nation's debt. the president and the house speaker both making statements in just the past hour. we're going to tell you what they said. also an earthquake, a powerful one has hit japan. a tsunami warning has been issued and that's where we're going to start right now. the japanese coast that has just hit the hardest by the earthquake earlier this year is under a tsunami warning at this hour. it is a magnitude 67 quake. it struck off the coast just about an hour ago felt as far as away as tokyo. we're going to join to our meet yolgs vimpb ca brar. is this an aftershock? >> absolutely. it's a 7.0. this is an automatic thing that they do here in japan. when you get a 7.0, approximately 100 miles east of the coast, it was strong enough or it could trigger an earthquake in the united states. we think of it assay you have a tornado warning as a result of a doppler indicated cell. we don't know if the tornado is on the ground. same thing her
no choice but to default on some big bills, the ceo of walmart told congress today the squabbling here in washington could have a huge negative impact nationwide on an all fragile recovery. >> a default and the ripple effect i think would be impactful and representing our consumers, we think that that would be very, very difficult for the american economy to withstand at this point in time in our history. >> that's here at home. >>> then there are global worries. concerns that a default or even a close call here could rattle international markets and international economies like that domino effect back after the big wall street meltdown a few years ago. >> the united states is the largest economy in the world, one that matters, one that has spillover effects, not just around the borders, but on a complete basis, globally. >> so, the stakes, they're obvious. the path to the solution, however, not nearly as clear. >> is it today, is it tomorrow, is it friday? magic things can happen here in congress in a very short period of time under the right circumstances. >> now, by "right circumsta
big development. this is the first member of the key negotiators in these debt talks has come out publicly to say he is on board. this coming from senate majority leader harry reid. the top democrat in the senate. a statement we just received from his office says senator reid has signed off on the debt ceiling agreement pending caucus approval. of course, pending caucus approval means pending -- getting the same sign-off from his fellow democrats. that, of course, leads me to believe he will probably be having a caucus meeting or at least some kind of conference call with his members at some point soon to discuss this with them. but this is a major development. because as we know, we were just talking yesterday, this is the same man who came back from a meeting at the white house with the president, seeming very pessimistic about the prospects of a deal. today we heard him speak cautiously optimistic as he said. now we have for the first time one of the key negotiators publicly coming out to say that he has signed on to these -- to the debt ceiling agreement. of course, we need to
opposition to this big, but there, i predict, will be no democrat for this bill so because bipartisanship was not sought. i'm a diely concerned it would pus us right back on the praecipe of imminent default in just a few months, casting a pall of uncertainty. and leading to a job-destroying credit downgrade. >> i urge my colleagues in the name of sanity and in the name of ensuring in a we pass this measure and we send it to our colleagues in the united states senate. >> here areas a quick reality check if this bill passes the house, it's going to hit a big roadblock in the senate. senate democratic caucus, every member of that caucus has signed onto a letter say they will oppose the bill, and senate majority leader harry reid announced today they will quickly take up the bill in the senate this evening, but only to table the measure, a vote to table the measure effectively just setting it aside. that doesn't mean think couldn't take it back up if they wanted to, but it's a quick way legislative for democrats to show there is not enough support for this big to pass the senate. it brings us
to engage in serious negotiations. >> so, now what is the big question? speaker boehner will rebut the president just about 14 minutes from now. we'll take you there live. in his letter to his colleagues, he said his preference now is to work on a plan in the congress. but the president expects the house and the senate leaders of both parties at the white house saturday morning. is this just theater before a deal or a recipe for gridlock and maybe an economy shattering government default? chief white house correspondent jessi jessica yellin, and kate bolduan, and gloria borger here, jess, the speaker doesn't want to negotiate anymore, and this is not a president known for his anger or his temper, but he seemed pretty piqued. >> reporter: this was the president hitting by far his most frustrated, fed-up note during the debt negotiations by far, john. we heard him say that the republicans just don't know how to say yes. that he offered the most generous package he could. in short he said that he offered them a deal that democrats just didn't like. he was basically saying he was enrag
. we saw this yesterday ahead of the briefing. pushing support for this gang of six plan and it's a big one, kiran. that would include $500 billion in immediate cuts and there would be tax increases approximately to the tune of $1 trillion and it would tackle intij entitlement reform. you're saying doesn't it sound like the grand bargain that president obama was pursuing with speak boehner and was a no-go on the impasse on tax increases? exactly right. this is a big plan and there is something in this plan, i think, for everyone to hate. for republicans insisting no tax increases even on the wealthy and for democrats who are very concerned about medicare cuts, even though the program solvency is threatened. >> brianna keilar, we are watching every single second of this debt deal of the negotiations. we will be talking a lot more in the next couple of hours, next couple of days. >>> minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann getting more attention on the campaign trail. another poll showing she is making inroads with gop voters? >> reporter: she sure is what the polls indicate. yesterday s
the arrest of rebekah brooks. she's out on bail right now, but her arrest over the weekend a big surprise. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, she was -- the length that she was detained for was incredible as well. 12 hours she spent -- more than 12 hours in a police station in london answering questions, and she wasle only released around midnight last night local time. so that was a huge development in this. she's out on police bail now, but that doesn't mean she's excused from appearing before a committee of mps tomorrow london time. she's still going to turn up and be careful about what she says, and the politicians are going to have to be careful about what they ask her as well. there could be a trial down the track if she's charged, and therefore they're going to make sure under the rules here that they don't sort of prejudice any forthcoming trial. nevertheless i think she's going to get a pretty tough interrogation at the hands of politicians as will her former bosses rupert and james murdoch who appear now separately from her before the same committee tomorrow afternoon. >> dan, let me as
to the men and women watching us on the armed forces network. a big thank you to you as well. >>> we're just hours before tonight's debt reduction talks at the white house. live pictures there this morning. the ambitious hopes for a large-scale deal have been dashed. the apparent sticking point? taxes, here is how house speaker, john boehner, sees it as democrat and republican leader prepare for tonight's showdown. quote, despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the white house will not pursue debt reductions without tax hikes. i believe the best approach may be to focus on producing smaller cuts, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of the debt limit increase. the white house talking about expectations at those talks. here's what spokesman dan fiver had to say about it. he said we cannot ask the middle class and seniors to bear all the burden of higher costs and budget cuts. we need a balanced approach, he says that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well and we believe the american people agree. cnn
of those calls are from democrats. murdock is a big backer of republicans. if more momentum builds for probes, there are cautionary tales for lawmakers, reports that the tabloids sometimes turn the tables on those who investigate them. most of those accounts date back to well before this scandal ploou up in the media in recent weeks. martin moore of the media standards trust tells us when british parliamentary looked in the tabloid press a couple years ago, he heard of allegations that they were discouraged from repeatededly inviting rebecca brooks to testify. >> the allegation was they were told, members of that committee were told, do not invite her again. do not press this one, do not push it, because if you do, you'll regret it. that was made very clear. >> reporter: a news corporation spokesman would not comment on that allegation. are you concerned that they might hit back at you and dig into your personal life or whatever? >> i'm not worried about my personal life nor am i worried about my next term. i've been here 27 years. when you grow up in a poverty stricken area and po
tennessee. can they sell it to the house republicans? >> that's a big question. i think what we saw today both from president obama and someone like lamar alexander is this isolation that going on of the house republicans, saying, look, the gang of six got a deal, that's why president obama went out this to say it. mitch mcconnell's got a backup plan. john boehner and i were kind of working together and, well, who's out of that picture? the house republicans. and the polls are increasingly showing that the house republican point of view is not popular with the american public. i mean, there's a "washington post" out -- poll out tonight that says that more than three-quarters of americans see the republican leadership as being too resistant. >> however, however, let's listen as we go back to kate bolduan on the hill, the democrats are reading the polls. the democratic leadership going to the floor essentially saying, republicans, why are you wasting our time? >> the public has had it with this theater of the absurd that's going on. they want congress to come together as our president has s
for joining us. if we don't get a deal out of washington before the big bad debt ceiling deadline, one of the guys you can blame or thank, depending on how you see it, is congressman joe walsh, a republican from illinois. he's one of those freshmen who rode the tea party wave into washington last fall. we mentioned them a moment ago. he spoke out against a compromise at a tea party rally in washington earlier today. listen. >> i'm a freshman. maybe i'm naive. but i don't think unless we force -- unless we force republicans and democrats to balance their books every year, they won't. the only way we can do that is to force them. the only way we can force them is to put a balanced budget amendment in the constitution. we have to do that. we can't yield. >> and congressman walsh joins me now live from capitol hill. congressman, welcome back to the show here. listen, you know what i'm hearing more than anything around d.c., people are saying about you and some of the other people who are really holding the hard line here, don't these guys know how to take a win? because the feeling is that
. but they seem to be quite optimistic they're moving towards something and a big endorsement, this earlier today from the top negotiator democrat in the senate, harry reid. a lot of moving parts. trying to get a hold on t. and talk about republicans. do we know where they stand on the approval of this deal? >> reporter: yeah. that is a big question, because the house republicans, you saw just how hard it was for the house republican leadership to get their own bill through the house, and to get their own members onboard for this deal. talking about a compromise, you can only guess that might be even a tougher sale, possibly. we haven't heard yet from house speaker john boehner or house leadership and where they stand on things. we know, though, however, we are told by a top senate republican leadership aide that they're not there yet and still working. so it seems like they're still working on the deal. clearly, not at a place harry reid is at this point and that's a big question of where are republicans going to stand on this? are they going to endorse it and what their issues are with it. don?
this if there is a framework. they are pushing for something big. trils of dollars in deficit savings the course of ten years. reminder of the moving parts that a deal like that would require the next several days major spending cuts, tax reform, entitlement reform and if democrats in the white house were to get their way, tax increases. you can see that is pretty much a heavy lift and so you still have a lot of people looking to a more modest deal that the top democrat and republican in the senate, harry reid and mitchell mcconnell are trying to work out which would be more spending cuts and perhaps more modest and perhaps giving the president the unenviable position to have to increase the debtcele himself with a minority support from congress. >> brianna keilar, thanks. >>> government is scrambling to pay its bills here is something americans don't want to hear. billions of dollars in your tax money is being wasted in afghanistan or worse. a new federal audit says that some of that cash may be funding, are you ready for this? the same insurgency that is killing americans. chris lawrence is at the pentagon
the cloud-- big clouds, small ones, public, private, even hybrid. your data and apps must move easily and securely to reach many clouds, not just one. that's why the network that connects, protects, and lets your data move fearlessly through the clouds means more than ever. >>> jack cafferty is here with "the cafferty file." >> in 2008 president obama promised to get all troops out of the iraq by the end of this year. after winning the presidency, he vowed to keep that promise. now is the deadline for military withdrawal approaches, he's apparently prepared to break that promise. gee, what a surprise. he's offering to leave 10,000 troops in iraq indefinitely. the white house says it's concerned that the planned pullout at the end of the year could spark violence and trigger militant attacks there. and don't forget all that oil. any extension of u.s. military presence depends on a formally request from the iraqi government. so far no request has been made, but the pentagon wants to give the prime minister and his government time to decide, so if they need the help, there's time to plan

said it was going to -- said it was going to. here's why it's such a big problem. because of speaker boehner, he said there's one major principle, you'll remember, jessica, as they moved forward to raise the debt ceiling, that the amount of the cuts be greater than the amount they raised the debt ceiling. and in this legislation right now is called for raising the debt ceiling by $900 billion, $850 billion, is less than $900 billion, so know that's a problem. policy aides are scrambling to try to rewrite the legislation to make their way forward. we know they're aiming for a vote tomorrow, but we don't know if they can promise it quite yet. we got a speaker from speaker boehner's spokesman, this coming from michael steele, in response, in reaction to the cbo, michael steele said we're here to change washington, no more spoke and mirrors or phantom cuts. we promised we'd cut more than the debt ceiling. as we speak, congressional, are looking at options to rewrite the legislation to meet our pledge. this is what can happen when you have an actual plan and submit all it really seemed to

rates go up. credit cards, mortgage rates, auto loan rates. you mentioned august 3rd, that big social security payment? according to many republicans, unless we default on an actual debt we don't have to get our debt downgraded. according to s & p and ben bernanke, if you default on any payment you're supposed to make, even if it's not to a bond holder you could face that. >> republicans who say, look, i don't buy it's this big catastrophe waiting to hit after august 2nd. >> reporter: they absolutely could be right. but anderson, you and i were together on september 15, 2008 after they decided a lot of smart people decided to let lehman brothers fail thinking it's not that big of a deal. i don't know which way it's going to go. i don't know if we should be playing with fire like this. >> john, what do you make of jessica's reporting that she's hearing mitch mcconnell is wanting president obama to be at the table in any negotiations? >> as a couple of political reasons for that in the sense that then you can't cut a deal then the white house will say we're going to try this. to move th

the -- prevent the u.s. from going into default. the big question is, can all of this be done by the critical august 2nd deadline? and what the white house has been clear to point out in the past, the president would be willing to support any kind of short-term deal for one or two days if they need to cross the ts and dot the is of a potential agreement. the president would be willing to embrace something like that. so that's what we'll be watching closely over the next few hours, fredricka. >> dan, despite the fact that they had a vote, kind of procedural vote on that senate majority leader harry reid's plan today, when nancy pelosi and reid went to the white house last night, was that the beginning of working out this kind of framework? >> reporter: well, it's unclear whether that was actually the beginning of, you know, working on the particular framework. what we do know is that they're looking at the last 24 hours as a period when significant progress was made. so whether it's direct talks that was taking place with democrats and the president or with republicans and the president, as ka
all do that. nationwide, you can see why where that big focus is. we're doing a little better in places across the southwest. albuquerque is looking at 88. 91 in denver. that's hot if you're exerting yourself in the peak of the heat of the day. the other thing to mention especially in the peak of the heat of the day is that the air quality and many of these cities is very poor too. you don't want to go outside for that reason either. we have been calling this a heat dome. what really is that. basically we have got this dome of high pressure that is stacked way up, thousands of feet, even miles up into the atmosphere, where we have high pressure. and what happens when you have a high pressure system, you think high and dry, sunny and beautiful, right? but high pressure has descending air in it. when it descends, it compresses and heats up. when you're near the center of the dome or the center of the high, it stays very, very warm and you're seeing the worst of it. that's why we have been seeing hotter temperatures in new york city than what you've been seeing in atlanta, georgi

-term extension of the debt ceiling, that this take the debt ceiling to a point -- it's a big enough extension that it wouldn't have to be raised until after the november 2012 election. listen to the president and take a sense of his mood yesterday. actually i guess we do not have sound, fredricka. >> let me ask you, brianna, we know that john boehner was there. who else was at this meeting, so we can get a little color as to who was present and what the dynamics may have been? >> reporter: that's right. we're waiting to see if staff went in in the end as well. we don't have those details. but it was a smaller meeting. it was president obama and speaker john boehner hours after this thing has fallen apart and after weeks of a lot of cordiality between the speaker and the president. that was interesting to know a few hours later -- you had the minority leader in the house, nancy pelosi, was there. harry reid and mitch mcconnell were there. all key players because the understanding is that, of course, in the house, this will require votes from democrats and republicans. and right now, the ball i

the c. and he appeared to be picking up the votes. lesson to shawn duffy. >> is this as big as we wanted to go? heck, no. we wanted to go bigger. we ran on going bigger. but this is the only proposal on the table that accomplishes the goals that we set out to do. >> progress but apparently and this is why we have such a drama unfolding on capitol hill, not enough progress. the speaker is still short the votes. he's delayed the key vote, a key vote to not only if you are sitting at home, maybe you think the debt ceiling should be raised, maybe you should, it's a fundamentally important political showdown, some people think the speaker's hold on his job could be in jeopardy if he loses this vote. let's go to kate bolduan, do they believe they can twist enough arms to get enough votes to pass this tonight? >> reporter: fabulous question this evening and one that is very hard to answer at this moment. i can tell you, let me just give you the lay of the land what you can probably see a little bit of, john, you were talking about the speaker's office, it's right down the hallway, what we're se
divided government. that requires compromise. even though we have had big disputes over the years, there's been a situation where parties work together for things that have to happen. i know people around the country are frustrated and angry. the president shares that frustration. it's why the phone lines are jammed on the hill. e-mails and websites are going down because people don't understand why compromise is a dirty word in this town. >> how much responsibility does the white house take for the kurpt economy. there comes a point when blaming george bush no longer holds water. when you look at the credit rating coming down, how much blame are you guys taking in that? >> what the president has said is we didn't get into this mess overnight and we are not going to get out overnight. the president inherited financial challenges. we are working to get out of it. the president said the recovery is happening, but not fast enough. we are not creating enough jobs, the economy is not working. if we are going to have a real solution, it has to be republicans and democrats working together. it'
. but i don't think anyone should be surprised. and they won pretty big. the question is, where l they compromise going forward. i had two republicans saying they don't want to vote for anything in the end that doesn't want to have a pass the balanced budget. to get the debt ceiling, you have to pass a balanced budget. this is too important of an issue. >> they want to vote on an amendment. and we need to have that and give them an opportunity to vote on a balanced budget amendment. and the reid cut does not -- there is more of a commitment to spending in the near term and a path way to get a retitlement with triggers to force action to get addition@savings. those are two things that have to be in there. and it's going to be fortunate get republican spoort. >> one of the political arguments and the arguments for anyone at home f you get a deal in the end there is talk that the ratings agencies will downgrade the credit rating because it's to messy. i want you to listen to the president. if you have a conservative, you don't want taxes as part of the deal. if the credit rating gets
of the big issues that the white house has had with the house republican plan and what's really been seen as an area that needed to be negotiated and really could be the thing that could lead to a break-through on a deal is this idea of if you're going to have a two-part increase in the debt ceiling that would take the debt ceiling through the next election, november 2012, it was really how you tied that second increase in the debt ceiling after several months. the white house senate democrats didn't like the way that the house republicans were doing it. they felt it would have led to some chaotic situation like we have seen with all of this back and forth over the debt increase and they would have seen it again around the new year and they didn't want to do it again. they are looking at that sort of seam, if you will, in the context of the framework to maybe work it out in a way that is more amendable to the white house and democrats. >> brianna keilar for us at the white house. cnn is dedicated to providing you up to the minute coverage of the debt crisis and tomorrow night, we will bri
this procedural vote to our viewers and what it means. the big vote still to come. >> wolf, they have something in the rules committee that allows members of congress to basically strike the last word if there's ame amendments and stuff that must go to it. this is a procedural vote. >> you used to work for the speaker of the house when he was newt gingrich. >> the motion is the minority party's shot at an alternative. it will be defeated by the majority. >> it's been really intense over these past 24 hours. it looked very gloomy for the speaker, john boehner. all of a sudden they sweetened the pot for the tea party supporters, freshman republicans, and now it looks like he's going to get this language passed. >> a guaranteed vote on the balanced budget amendment. i think that the speaker of the house would not even be bringing this up if he were not absolutely sure that he did not have the votes to pass it which is why he didn't bring it up yesterday. what's interesting about this is we watched for hours last night. people going in and out of his office. pizza being delivered and all the rest.
there are also big signs that speaker boehner is facing a vocal rebellion among the gop ranks, among republican ranks. this morning on conservative talk radio he tried to rally the troops. >> is it true that you told some of the republican members this morning that you need to get your a word in line behind this debt ceiling bill? >> i sure did. listen, this is time to do what is doable. this bill isn't perfect. >> what have we got to do? >> just moments after he spoke those words from fellow republicans and tea party leaders were rallying against his bill outside the capitol. >> folks, we've got to hold the line. we've got to stand strong. we can't let down the people who elected us last november. >> we have the boehner proposal on the table. it will cut next year $1billion [ audience boos ] >> we are spending $1 billion an hour virtually. that is insignificant and not meaningful reform. >> tea party favorites rand paul and jim demint. one of the rally organizers saying compromise simply is not the answer. >> we do think compromise is a bad word. if you look at what's happened, compromise has
